2020 Virtual CPA Firm Partners Conference-CPA Firm Valuation in 2020 and Beyond: Adapting to Thrive.
BizON Capital Corporation is hosting a free Canadian virtual CPA Firm Partners conference on July 15th. I will be there along with Darryl Boyd who is our Regional Market Leader in Toronto, to talk about how to thrive in 2020 and beyond to help you build a better, more marketable accounting practice. We’ll dedicate quite a bit of time to Q&A so if you have any questions about accounting practice value, what buyers are looking for in the marketplace, or how to best plan for succession, please register here. The opportunities and challenges firms are encountering in the US and Canada are quite similar so this event will be helpful for CPAs anywhere in North America.
